Stage Door (1937)

In director Gregory La Cava's showbusiness-related comedy-drama:

  • the realistic performances of other theatrical boardinghouse roommates
  • the tearjerking scene of a depressed Kaye Hamilton (Andrea Leeds) ascending a staircase and hearing applause as she was about to commit suicide
  • Terry's memorable tearful rendition of the "calla lilies are in bloom..." and her curtain call speech
